After almost no sleep, we had to get up, pack and vacate our room by 10am. We did manage to do this but everyone seemed a bit slower. We headed to find food and went in search of the Lennon wall. It's a really cool, evolving wall of art that just keeps getting added to day by day. We took lots of photos and went in search of the car. We packed up our belongings headed out the city. We kept getting asked if we were ok and did we see the explosion in Prague. Well we were still there, but did not see or hear anything and until we got to our next destination, really had no idea what happened accept there was an explosion. Our next stop was to Kunta Hora to the Bone Church.

This is a church that has the bones of an estimated 40,000 people artfully arranged inside. Side note- I went hiking with Erin a couple weeks ago and walked up on skeletons of dear and pretty much freaked out. Erin whips out her phone and takes pictures and I won't go near them. And yet I wanted to go see hundreds of thousands of bones in a church in the middle of Czech. I don't get me either. Anyway, the church was very cool, and creepy. Though the bones were not meant to be creepy but more of a reminder that people are all equal in death. I'm glad I get to say I went to this place.

In Kunta Hora, right across the street from the church, I had a piece of cake in celebration of my birthday. Lovely. Then it was off to stay in a romantic chateau with Akansha and Melissa for two nights. We get out to Krásná Lípa and to this chateau. We are the only ones in this place. We have it entirely to ourselves, no one even stays in it full time to manage it. Awesome, we have a secluded giant house to ourselves. Oh hey, they have TVs! And they provide us with movies...except they are all horror movies or scary movies and none of us want that. They gave us two rooms, one with two beds and one with one giant bed. Hindsight, we should have all slept in one bed because some of us did not sleep at all, alone in their room unprotected from chateau ghosts. At least Akansha and I had each other to use as defense. Melissa, not so much. The next night was much easier on all of us and it was very cool to stay in the chateau.
